The GTA 12" sniper barrel is shorter for those who like to keep their gun length shorter. It is used for extreme accuracy, and is honed smooth to ensure effortless ball travel and increase consistancy between shots.
The Tippmann Sniper Barrel is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

flatline barrel/14" sniper barrel
20 oz tank
I used this barrel for about a year and it was flawless. It shoots like a real gun, straight. It is so quiet the only thing you can hear with it is the bolt clinking. I used it for about a year and never had any problems. I absolutley loved this barrel. The only reason I switched to a flatline was cuz Im a woodsballer and I want the range. I wish I could have this barrels accuracy with the flatlines distance.

Tippmann 98 Custom, Sniper Barrel
ACCURATE ( XTREMELY)
I bought this barrel couple of months ago... And when i shot the first 500 shots it was sick.... No breakage, very far shooting with accuracy. Very quiet especially playing Woods witch is what i play. Very low Maintenance too! I give it a 10 becuase its just very very very good and i think if you play woods you should buy it.
i can shoot 50 cent peices all day long from 50 yds+, as long as i have good paint great barrel , but is usually underated because some people think that the brand tippmann is low class. I can and will depend on this barrel to deliver quality shots for many days to come.
I reccomend this product strongly because the accuracy and relibilaty.

I got this barrel for free for my 98c. This barrel is great, I can take people out at far distance then the stock barrel.Plus, its a lot quiet than the stock barrel. When I chop a paintball in the barrel you have to clean it out before shooting again, if you don't you have a big mess to clean.

SUCKS when you break
Great barrel for the price. Very accurate, I wouldnt agree with the other reviews on the sound factor. This barrel is pretty loud. Dont use old paint, the break on the end will blow the paint. When you break one dont try to shoot it out, it wont work, and it makes an ugly mess. If you break your better off to squeegee it out, unless you are trying to hit someone 5 feet in front of you.
Great barrell for the price.
Very Good Accuracy
I favor the All American it is much quieter with comparable accuracy.
Make sure you dont use old paint, and this barrel will work great.
marbalizzers, diablo's, anything really, even offbrands.
Very accurate, somewhat quieter, great value
Can't shoot balls once one chops
I bout this barrel used from a fried for 20$ so i got a good deal but normally its 35$. it is deffinetly more accurate than the 8' stock tippmann barrel. It is somewhat quieter but not extremely different. I used it on the feild and sniped my friend right in the mask in a quick 1 on 1 game. The only problem is that the one in ever 500 or so shots that chops in the barrel, will not let the balls leave without chopping, so carry a squegee. But overall it shots very accurate w/ the occasional curve but other than that i am very satisfied.
I would recommend buying this, or the j and j ceramic barrel.

12" GTA Sniper Barrel
Pure Energy 20oz CO2
Vforce Profiler Mask
Heat - its cheap and fits the barrel very well
Strong, ported, not too long, counter bored nicely, cheap
Not reverse ported, that would be nice.
Overall this is an excellent barrel. It's not the ridiculous 16" - 24" barrels out there, 12" - 14" is what you want at most. It can be found all over the place for cheap and it shoots great. If you read actual reviews you'll find there are three important things in a barrel, reverse porting, counter boring and length. When i say length i mean too long can hurt you especially when using CO2. This has 2 out of three. It shoots straight, is relatively quiet, and looks pretty good. Overall I think a budget conscious player who wants a solid barrel to replace the stock would do well with this one. I personally am very happy with it and feel no need to buy anything else.
If you have a Tippman or other marker this will fit on then get it! Don't spend crap loads of money on your setup, especially when it probably wont make you any better. Just get something solid that is affordable and focus on the game. I spank other people with expensive setups all the time. Enjoy the game and play hard. I give a 9 because it could have reverse porting to make this an extremely good barrel.
Tippmann 98 Custom
16'' Tippmann Sniper Barrel
20 oz CO2 tank
I used cheap White Box Paint and didn't have any breaks
-Dangerously accurate, hit shot on shot 100 feet away
***All Of My Reviews Are Edited And Re-Edited***
I used this sniper barrel on my friend's gun that i used very rarely. It wasn't too bad, but it made the gun freckin' huge. But one easy change is put the tank under your arm in your armpit, it cuts down length by a surprising amount. But as far as the barrel, too accurate to describe, especially for indoor, only two if not one shot will hit someone.
If you need a new barrel, get the 16'' tippmann sniper barrel, especially for all the 98c users, try it for the custom pro and A-5 also. I say by far the best barrel i have ever used. I think i'll get a barrel thread converter to get one for my spyder rodeo.

The out side ano sratches on ever thing.
I got mine affter about 6 months of useing stock 98 barrel, and i was a huge upgrade.
if you keep your marker in good condition and use and air tank, you could pick some off at about 60 yard will no problem.
there are many barrels that look like this (the nite stick for exampel) but non preform like this
If you wan a barrel for under $50 and your still useing the stock 98 barrel go with this one because it works really really well
